I've added as proposed 'AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR' to configure.ac and
'ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS' to Makefile.am. That reduces the output from
libtoolize on my machine to

 address@hidden:~/Programming/XForms/xforms$ libtoolize 
 libtoolize: putting macros in AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR, `config'.
 libtoolize: You should add the contents of `config/libtool.m4' to `aclocal.m4'.

I have no idea what this 'You should...' line is supposed t mean,
aclocal.m4 is a generated file, so I hardly can add anything to

But I'm rather groping in the dark with all of this, my under-
standing of these autotools and libtools is very rudimentary -
I'm already rather happy if I don't break too much;-) So for
the time being I guess I'll have to ask you to check if it
now works for you and if it doesn't it's back to the drawing
                           Best regards, Jens
